At least five people were killed and at least two children were wounded in a shooting at a Northern California school on Tuesday morning. Multiple shots were fired at Rancho Tehama Elementary School. The gunman was reportedly shot by police.
“Multiple shots were fired in Rancho Tehama, with multiple victims. I am told the suspected shooter is deceased from law enforcement bullets,” a deputy said.
“I know that we have medevaced a number of students,” Johnston said. “I know that the school’s been cleared. I know that we have children that were attending school in a safe location at this time.”
“The crazy thing is that the neighbor has been shooting a lot of bullets lately, hundreds of rounds, large magazines,” said the man, identified by the Redding Record Searchlight as Brian Flint. “We made it aware that this guy is crazy and he’s been threatening us.”
The shooting reportedly started at a home and moved to Rancho Tehama Elementary School, authorities said. There are over 100 law enforcement officers at the school with up to five crime scenes.
